Some twenty-four years ago, alumni Chip Olson ’90 and Derek Ritchie ’89, MBA ’07, came together and hosted the 1st annual Eastern Cup golf fundraiser at Hickory Valley Golf Club in Gilbertsville, PA. The outing was attended by 40 friends and alumni of the University and had a modest profit of a few thousand dollars. 

Fast forward to 2022, and the Eastern Cup committee co-chaired by Kevin Gallagher and Chip Olson has crafted an event that is one of the most prestigious in the area, but also the most successful fundraising event at Eastern University, averaging annually between five and six figures raised, benefitting the students of Eastern. Numerous alumni have participated throughout the years, along with University business and vendor relationships. 

The 2022 Eastern Cup will be hosted on Tuesday, May 31, 2022, at The Philadelphia Cricket Club. Will you consider joining us this year? Not a golfer, consider a table sponsorship or hole sponsorship and enjoy a delicious dinner with a spectacular view.
